What Vegans Eat – Day 1479

First Meal: We had a lot to do early in the day and we didn’t sit down to eat until around 2pm. By then we were so hungry. We quickly warmed up all the prepared food: organic Polenta, organic Black Beans, organic Sweet Potatoes. I topped my Beans with Tahini Dressing, it’s like sour cream…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1478

First Meal: After a family meeting at the mortuary for the upcoming funeral it was time for lunch. For those who have followed this blog for a while should recognize these next photos. Whenever we visit Khanh’s we always order the same dishes. They always look and taste the same too, but the food is…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1477

First Meal: Gary made Blueberry Bread. He’s been talking about making it for weeks. A dream come true. It’s beautiful and gluten-free. Served with organic Peanut Butter (just peanuts!) and organic Apricot Butter (just apricots and water).   Second Meal: After an intense morning of meeting a project deadline and broadcasting my radio show with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1476

First Meal: We are relaxing, trying to get in a celebratory mode today with Gary’s show completed. However, also quite numb because of the recent passing of his father. I suggested going to Crepes Bistro. We begin with Green Juice and Chamomile Tea.   Gary ordered the Avocado Crepe, his usual.   And I went…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1475

First Meal: It’s the last day of performances for Gary’s show. I stay’d back to do some work. When I got hungry I was happy to reheat the remaining organic Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Vegetables.   Snack: When I am hungry and not wanting to prepare anything, an organic Apple will hold me over.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1474

First Meal: Gary was off to the theater for the matinee performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I plan on joining him for the evening show. I served myself some organic Rolled Oats today, with organic Strawberries, organic Pumpkin Seeds and organic Soy Milk and I made a pot of organic Maté.   Second Meal:…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1473

First Meal: I wanted to make Breakfast Black Beans but I didn’t have cocoa powder. I did have a 70% cocoa dark chocolate bar that I almost added to my pot of cooked organic Black Beans, organic Purple Sweet Potatoes, organic Red Onions and organic Cinnamon. But then I decided not to. What was amazing…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1472

First Meal: It’s opening night for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I plan on attending, but first a visit to my friend Nancy’s home in San Francisco. I had a quick bowl of organic Rolled Oats with organic Strawberries, organic Raisins, organic Walnuts, organic Pumpkin Seeds and organic Soy Milk before Gary took me to the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1471

First Meal: Not long ago I created this soup made with organic Purple Sweet Potatoes, organic Tofu, organic Red Onions and Water. I like to call it Purple Rain Soup, not Prince’s “blood in the sky” variety but an anthocyanin-rich, fragrant dish with a gorgeous purple hue.   There was some leftover Garbanzo Bean batter…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1470

First Meal: A liquid beginning for the day. A green smoothie with organic Kale, organic Blueberries, organic Bananas and organic Soy Milk and organic Maté Tea.   Second Meal: It almost feels like we are home. Gary made one of his specialties, a Garbanzo Bean Flour Frittata with organic Kale and organic Onions and Home…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1469

First Meal: After our grocery shopping yesterday at the Staff of Life Market, I was envisioning making a smoothie with a couple of the gorgeous bunches of organic Lacinato Kale we purchased. Gary picked up an inexpensive blender to use while staying at his dad’s house. Since it’s not a Vitamix that laughs at anything…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1468

First Meal: One day without a green salad and I was craving one so badly. Gary made me a big bowl of organic Baby Greens and organic Arugula with a Tahini Dressing and Olives. What more could I ask for?   How about leftovers? Yesterday’s organic Brown Rice Pasta and Peas with Cashew Cheese Sauce…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1467

First Meal: Gary and I are happy to be together. We are happy eating together. But we don’t have to eat the same way. I made organic Polenta and topped it with Gary’s homemade Marinara Sauce and Nutritional Yeast. Gary topped his Polenta with Apricot Butter. Savory or Sweet – have it your way.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1466

First Meal: I have been here at Gary’s dad’s home since Monday night. I am feeling more at home and decided it was my turn to make breakfast. I made Oatmeal, cooked with Raisins, Bananas and Pumpkin Seeds. I stirred in Raspberries when it was all done. It’s beautiful.   Second Meal: We had another…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1465

First Meal: Happy Valentine’s Day. We are feeling a bit disoriented today, with Gary’s dad dying yesterday. After a meeting with his family at the mortuary to plan the funeral Gary and I wanted to go somewhere where we would feel at home and comfortable. There’s only one place like that in San Jose and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1464

First Meal: We had no idea this would be the day. Gary’s 93-year-old-dad had had a difficult night, moaning and groaning throughout most of it. His evening caretaker was in need of help and called the women who managed him during the day. She knew he was going fast. Gary’s dad didn’t want to go…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1463

First Meal: It’s lovely to be back together with Gary. We had a rough night though. We are staying at his 93-year-old dad’s house and his dad is not doing well. He has 24-hour, in-home care. The woman who is taking care of him most of the time is marvelous. But he seemed uncomfortable last…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1462

Green Juice: Today’s the day! I leave for the airport in the late afternoon. I had purposely taken a frozen Green Juice out of the freezer last night and put it in the refrigerator. It was still frosty so I set in on the counter and waited for it to defrost. In the meantime I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1461

First Meal: Only one day until I leave for California. Gary and I are excited to see each other very soon! I am working on finishing up the fresh produce in the refrigerator. There are a lot of organic Apples, so I chopped one up to have with organic Rolled Oats, organic Raisins, organic Blueberries,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1460

First Meal: The countdown is getting smaller. I leave in two days for California. My long to-do list is much shorter than it was 6 weeks ago when Gary left for California and I began to get some overdue projects done. Today I plan on cleaning the apartment. As Cinderella says in Into the Woods,…
